A globe display at my local library
This month at my local library I was given the chance to setup a display of some of my globe collection. I filled two glass cabinets with an interesting mix of small globes and related ephemera.
The whole month of April people will be able to learn a bit about the history of globes. Riveting stuff to be sure, will anyone even care....? Well perhaps I will spark just one persons' interest in collecting. Besides what good is a collection if it sits collecting dust in a dark closet. These items are meant to be shared, thats my opinion anyhow. So check out my pics and tell me what you think. Quite a fun project to participate in and all positive feedback so far ! Space limitations allowed for only about a dozen or so smaller globes but this representative sample spanned over 100 years of globe manufacture from 1846 to 1950 .
